Fender Custom Shop

Vintage Vibe with Modern Playability

Original Fender design in concert with modern appointments and a custom Journeyman Relic® finish make the Limited Edition ’62/’63 Strat® a timeless one-of-a-kind tool for players, pros and collectors alike. Created in the Fender Custom Shop, this road-worthy stage companion features Custom Shop hand-wound ’60/’63 Strat® pickups, which are wound to the exact specs from those formidable years that burned the Stratocaster into the history of music forever. A combination of features from this transitional period are wide 12th fret dot spacing, pickguard screw spacing and a round-lam fingerboard.

One of the best features of this guitar is the extremely comfortable neck - we had the Custom Shop give the back of the neck a heavy relic treatment, with most of the finish worn off.  It feels amazing, and looks authentic.  

The two-piece alder body wears a nitro lacquer Journeyman Relic® finish, while the tinted rift-sawn maple neck sports a ’63 “C” profile, round-lam rosewood fingerboard, 7.25”-9.5” fingerboard radius and 21 medium vintage frets. Vintage modified #2 wiring with tone-saver treble bleed gives the player ability to roll off volume without losing delicate highs. Other features include five-way pickup switching, vintage synchronized tremolo and tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

 Come to Club Fender @ Truetone Music to try it out, or order right here to be shipped to your home.
